News Comments > Bethesda Opens New Austin Studio

Hello and good-bye Battlecry Studios... 'twas nice gettin' ta know ya as short as it may have been...

Seriously, with Rich Vogel on the wheel they are fucked before shit has even started. Rich Vogel's body count: Two Star Wars MMOs (which could have and should have been surefire smash hits thanks to the license if the games themselves wouldn't have sucked major donkey balls) and UO which slipped from being the no. 1 MMO into the pits of insignificance. Awesome track record right there. No, really.
Next on his hit list: Whatever MMO Battlecry is going to work on. That game is toast already. Mark my words. If I were Beth I'd spend the money on beer and hookers instead of flushing it down the shitter with Vogel but that's just me...

... and bet he'd raise more money if he went the kickstarter route.

You'd most likely lose that bet. The last space sim on Kickstarter didn't even reach the low initial target for financing. OK, it didn't have the name of Chris Roberts to it but still... space sims seem to be seriously out of fashion. How many people do you know who still possess a joystick? Right.

It's pretty mysterious, too. Fuck, I remember a time when you bought a new PC and they gave you a cheap joystick for free as a bonus so you could play MS Flight Sim, Wing Commander, Strike Commander, X-Wing or TIE fighter on your shiny new 486DX-40.

So what happened?

You know what? I think Microsoft happened. There used to be a time when people were looking forward to every major Microsoft OS release more because of the latest version of MSFS that usually came along with it than they were looking forward to actually trying out the new OS. Every new MSFS and flight and space sims in general were marvels of technology. Those were the "killer apps" back in the day, the system sellers.
Every new incarnation of Direct3D, OpenGL and Glide was a major milestone on the path to more realistic graphics and people were able and willing to plunk down the cash for the hardware to let that realism happen.
Then comes along Microsoft and releases the Xbox which results in laziness and (relative) stagnation. No longer is the PC the elite leading platform. Cross platform becomes the new buzzword and due to technological limitations space and flight sims no longer manage to stand out from a mass of very same-y looking games. The end.

Sounds way too good to be true so it will probably fail in some way or another...

I think this may turn into one of those games that's been in development so long that it will only disappoint anyone who plays it.

/agree

... unless the Skyrim-like open world stuff is true. FarCry and Crysis in all their incarnations have been rather half-assed attempts at bringing more openness to the shooter genre. A real state-of-the-art open world shooter could be quite interesting if done well.
They'd need to pay attention to not adding too much RPG-ness to it though or it may end up feeling like a HL mod for Fallout 3 or FNV. It probably should be more like Just Cause 2 but more serious and with more refined mechanics, a better and more coherent story and more memorable characters to create a unique open world atmosphere.

If this means the end of BioWhore then good riddance and don't let the door hit ya in the ass on ya way out. One less developer to pump out mediocre generic mainstream mass market crap is reason to celebrate.

3) Steam controls like crazy? WTF? They are some of the least controlling out there.

I'm speechless... this must be a case of someone being controlled so hard that they have lost all sense of being controlled... or something like that.

Seriously, I have come to appreciate Steam over the years but contrary to some propaganda victims like yourself I'm not blind to the fact that Gabe & co are all about controlling a major share of the digitally distributed gaming content on the PC platform (= what you'd usually expect from the platform leader or OS maker a.k.a MS but MS is apparently too busy with their Xbox control freakage to bother just even generally farting in Valve's direction).

Also, speaking in principle, every restriction of Steam (and there are shitloads when you think about it) is in effect an exercise of control.

Steam in and by itself and in its function as a digital distribution tool of publishers does indeed control like crazy. I find it outright scary that some people don't even realize that anymore. It reinforces suspicion that too much gaming might not be good for one's IQ.
Seriously. Open your eyes, people. And use your brain for more than just thinking about whether $9.99 is a good deal for Crysis or not. Jeez...

He will soon be asking for money on Kickstarter and I'm sure he will get it.

If he does then this will be the first Kickstarter project I will be backing if he is indeed developing an epic space sim with a story mode. This once popular genre desperately needs a revival and who would be better suited to fill the job than Chris Roberts?

I don't think any Intel CPU is locked anymore.

Most of them are still locked. Only the 'K' models are unlocked. I have an i5-2500K and I can confirm excellent OC-ability. I just set my mobo to auto-OC as well and the 2500K is running at 4.2GHz on air without any issue whatsoever.

Business as usual towards the end of a console cycle and an excellent indicator for Sony and MS that the right time for new products is quickly approaching. People are ready to move on. The player numbers will rise again once the next gen is here.

Both Western CoJ games with that crazy mofo (Reverend) Ray McCall were fuckin' awesome. A return to that setting with similarly interesting characters would be most welcome.

Just played for a few hours. I mostly played heavy assault and MAX but I briefly played every class and hopped in most of the vehicles. The UI is a bit overwhelming at first but I'm picking it up. Also I've got a bunch of points to spend on various upgrades but I can't decide where to use them. It's definitely something where I worry about wasting them and instead (probably more damaging) don't spend any at all.

^ = the very definition of a complete and utter n00b who should be playing Barbie Adventures instead of r3aL gamez liek PS2 BAHAHAAA
